    Clear newborn puppy airways, and nasal passages of mucus and fluid. These traditional one piece rubber bulb syringes are a basic for every whelping, for clearing mucus from the mouth and nasal mucous membrane. They are also handy in your first aid kit for washing small cuts and flushing eyes. The rubber tapered tip helps to reduce tissue trauma in these sensitive areas.

    Correct Use:

    • Squeeze the air out of the bulb of the syringe to create a vacuum.
    • Gently insert the tip into the nostril.
    • Slowly release the bulb to suction out any mucus.
    • Remove the syringe and squeeze the bulb forcefully to expel the mucus.

    Cleaning Your Bulb Syringe

    It's really important to keep all whelping equipment clean, especially bulb syringes when used for aspiratoration. Clean it well with warm, soapy water after each use. Squeeze the bulb with the tip in the soapy water to clean the inside, give it a good shake, before squeezing the soapy water out. Repeat the process with clean warm water to rinse. Then place the bulb syringe, bottom up, in a glass to dry.

    Remove Newborn Puppy Mucus or Fluid

    Tilt the puppy's head on a downward angle letting gravity help.

    Squeeze the bulb until it has deflated. 

    Place the tip into the puppy’s nose or mouth. Be gentle, but you will need to press it snugly against the nostril to create a seal. If placing in the mouth, be careful not to go past the entrance of the throat, as this could cause injury to the puppy's throat and airway.

    Gradually release the bulb. The suction created should draw fluid from the puppy and into the bulb syringe, removing mucus or fluid.

    Remove the bulb syringe from the nose or mouth and squeeze out any fluid before repeating  the process above – you don’t want o accidently add or push fluid further down into the lungs.

    Repeat the process until there is no more mucus or fluid.
